. republicans and some democrats including chuck hagel at the pentagon who don't like the level of defense spending the way it's squeezed by the budget sequester and it gets squeezed more in 2014 by the sequester proportionately than domestic programs do. that gives some impetus for republicans to go along. democrats are raising the caps by an equal amount on the domestic side of the budget. these are things, priorities the democrats have for social programs, republicans have for defense, which are getting relieved and stitching together solutions to fill in the gaps financially even at a little deficit reduction on top of that, things like raising the fees for airline companies pay for for airport security, that's on the revenue side and on the spending side, curbing federal retirement which some lawmakers don't like but it's a way to get some money. >> jon, thanks for the update. appreciate it very much. john harwood. ty, up to you. >> herbal life may be turning the tables on the hedge fund titan bill ackman. plus, this brings new meaning to the term ski out. how the middle class are get
